Epstein stood to face life imprisonment for trafficking minor girls for sex parties. But according to the details of the plea Acosta brokered, which were alleged in a bombshell report by the Miami Herald last week, the then-U.S. attorney secured Epstein a non-prosecution deal that required he serve just 13 months in county jail and plead guilty to two prostitution charges.
“The non-prosecution deal also had the effect of shutting down a Federal Bureau of Investigation examination of whether there were more victims and astonishingly granted immunity to potential co-conspirators,” the lawmakers’ letter continues.
The overall “lack of public transparency” about Acosta’s involvement in the case necessitates a review by the Inspector General, the letter argues.
Meanwhile, Trump is reportedly floating Acosta as a replacement for Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
This guy would fit in well as AG for the trump administration.
